Re: fashion vs. style
Jul 11, 2004, 03:21
Who else has ever tried to do the things that ELP tried to do?

Who are they "similar to"?

Beside Rick Wakeman, I can't think of anybody else.

Saying that "ELP had style" is not a positve or negative comment, it's merely noting the fact that they were DIFFERENT.

They tried to lead rocknroll in their direction, but no one followed, so their limb of the musical tree died without bearing any lasting fruit. So now they are terminally "unfashionable."

But fuck that, I hate "fashionable" music anyway. Give me a no-class overdose of gauche "STYLE" any day.
